I am looking for a modeling software.

  1. Nov 25, 2006 #1
    Hello!

    I am looking for a software that can build models and can imitate the
    action of that model.
    The model will be made out of rubber-bands, cog-wheels, weights and more...

    anyone knows of such a software?

    it is very important...

    thanks!!

    If you can program then it wouldd be lot's of fun to make one yourself:)
    other than that i don't think that i've ever seen something like that on the internet - maybe there's some engineering software you can use.

    ........ just so am around the same ballpark, you're looking for a software to model behavior of mechanisms? Do you want to link it to something like stress analysis etc. ?

    Have you seen the "Microsoft Physics Illustrator" as listed on the blog

    (follow the links to see how to use it on a non-TabletPC)

    Matlab is the best.

    Also you can try WorkingModel, it's fun.:rofl: http://www.design-simulation.com/" [Broken]
    But as stated, if you have some time to learn Matlab, consider doing it.

    Probably the easiest is anim8or. I'd say its probably definitely the smallest. (wings is pretty small). I've played with anim8or a lil, and gmax is more powerful, and easier to work with, but it cant export very easily. Both are my top 2 fav's if you dont count the ones you have to buy, like 3d studio max.

    Hope this helped...

    Try anim8or.
